Unique extraction machine, the PassyPress and the SuperPassyPress have been designed and optimized to process passion fruits (also called maracuja) in order to maximize the yield and quality of the juice. In fact the juice maintains its light colour even when processing the highly pigmented variety of fruits (purple or red passion fruit).
The unit squeezes the fruits between two drums: one in stainless steel with a special shape and the second in food grade rubber. An upper pushing device help the fruit to enter between the rollers.
The passage in between the rollers causes the breakage of the peel allowing out-coming of seeds and juice which can easily flow through a squeezing grill.
in the SuperPassyPress models, the peels are fed to the dedicated peel shaker to recover the potential residual juice.
The machines are mainly composed by:
stainless steel drum covered with food grade rubber;
stainless steel drum with special teeth allowing squeezing of fruits and feeding of the peel against the squeezing grill;
diaphragm with vertical movement for pushing the fruits between the two rotating convergent drums;
adjustable teflon scraper for the rubber drum;
hopper to collect and discharge juice and seeds and discharging hopper for peels
The model SuperPassyPress has a built-in peel shaker to recover the residual pulp from the peels
The PassyPress and the SuperPassyPress are available with the following models:
